"Perhaps never before in psychology has a more inspirational book been written. The selflessness of these over two dozen colleagues will reawaken your most magnanimous inspirations and transpose you to re-envision your own highest level of social action." Nicholas A. Cummings, PhD, ScD, former President, American Psychological Association "As a psychotherapist/social justice activist, I am inspired by these stories to reach higher, take more risks, and to realize that the limits that we place on ourselves in our professional roles are there to be questioned and challenged. This volume is powerful, not only because of the stories it tells, but because it illuminates the path for all of us in the world of psychotherapy who are wondering how we can make a difference in the larger world." - Laura S. Brown, PhD, ABPP, Founder and Director, Fremont Community Therapy Project, Seattle WA"Beautifully written, covering a wide range of important and moving projects, this book speaks to the place of hope in all of us…hope that we can make a difference in the world, bringing forth the best in all peopled and lessening the suffering which robs people of their dignity and wellbeing. This book is essential reading for anyone dedicated to creating real change in the world." - Judith V. Jordan, PhD, Director, Jean Baker Miller Training Institute, Wellesley Centers for Women; Assistant Professor, Harvard Medical School
